...may be because of 32MB ramhack. I will test a 00 ramhack build from vodonka later...

For testing I used the Avenger Trailer HD.

OC was @1.3Ghz

ROM: CM7.2.0-RC0-KANG temaseks build P204-29
Kernel: ironkrnL32-20120106h1801
BB/RIL: 0823

I used your attached trailer video, played on my KANG build #30 in Dolphin HD browser. Full screen playback in 360p smooth...that's good enough for me.

As I understand it he was referring to Flash video streams from You-tube in 720p played in the browser!!!

Given the right codec the hardware is of course absolutely playing vids up to 1080p - I had never glitches using external player like Moboplayer.

But the Point was 720p played in a Web-browser!

...that is arguably a little more demanding for the hardware since these interfaces produce a little more overhead.

As I wrote I could play it in 720p in full screen in the standard CM7 web browser using your KANG (P204-29 it was) with ironkrnL - didn't test, but I am sure it will also play with standard kernel.
Full screen was distorted with Dolphin HD and Opera, but (as I wrote) I am not sure if it isn't related to the 32MB-ramhack of the ironkrnL - I will test this later... But it played well in Browser...

And of course 360/480p is usually more than absolutely enough on a mobile device, but he wants the video to look good on an full HD Big screen - as I understand it.
And as mentioned in your KANG-thread (a little OT there...), if the video is coded in codec not supported by the phones hardware i.e. coded with webm like the example from the KANG thread... won't work.

no issues using your link in web browser here, using Gueste2X_v2.2_Final_Kernel_SR1 with update here with kernel

no OC only UV as shown in his giveMeRC6 post. really good rom for me. that trailer is smooth.

That trailer above game of thrones plays fine also.

Now I tried it with vodonkas new KANG kernel build from yesterday and must say - impressive...

With or without ramhack - the HD Trailer from Avenger I linked will run without glitches in browser window and full screen at 720p.

Without the distortions - I had with ironknL!

My problem is that it plays for a while and then the screen freezes but the sound continues playing. And yes I am talking about youtube in browser.

Standard question as always - are you using latest KANG?

Using a custom kernel will speed up things to...

As for me it works using latest KANG + latest ironkrnL 32MB ramhack @1.3Ghz.

...that is using Dolphin HD 7.3.0 or standard CM7 browser...

And yes it doesn't work with every 720p video - they must use a compatible meaning hardware supported is after all a phone an not a Quad core desktop computer an even on a desktop you are lost when the codec isn't properly supported....

And I need a good WiFi connection - didn't test this with 3G so far.

Not need anyway you couldnt tell the difference in quality between 480 and 720 on such a small screen.
